How do I respond to an observation score of a II in an area where I feel the score was unwarranted? I scored III in all other areas. The score was a II because I had students working on Google Classroom & was finishing up emails before I transitioned into the classroom reading. It’s the week before midterms, and I have duty for 20 minutes of my 50-minute planning period in 1st. I have to respond to these emails in a timely manner & all students were working diligently on the first assignment.

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!

Weird how the people who claim to believe in making government smaller have no problem with unfettered Federal interference in issues that fall under State jurisdiction (threatening States over their COVID and protest response) or a political party trying to force their interests into private businesses by threatening to repeal protections https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/live/2020/10/28/technology/tech-hearing.amp.html
I currently contribute 8% ($6.4k yearly) to 401k and max our HSA & ROTH IRA. After that + regular spending, I have about $1k per month that I invest in a standard brokerage account. Traditional advice says to max out 401k before standard brokerage, but I also want to save for a down payment on a house in 7-10ish years. Do you think this is a good approach, or would you recommend more/less to retirement? I plan on contributing more to 401k as my salary increases. I’m 23 now
